Almost every Toque seems to be a hit, but Spanish Gem surely is an evergreen. It's impossible to describe Its sweet and complex aroma. This is a high-class snuff everyone should try.

    It seems like Spanish Gem is a tribute to Spanish master blender Lluis Vinyets Salabert, who created a similar snuff called "Spanish Jewel." In true honestly, I am not so much for aromatics, but this snuff is worth every penny. The tin note is reminiscent of chocolate with sweet undertones that will linger in your nose. The base tobacco they use to manufacture it is rather dark in colour and has a nice red-brown hue to it. I am truly impressed with this tobacco. Highly recommended.

    There is so much going on the spanish gem I don't know where to start! I guess I would have to firstly pay proper respects to the history behind the inspiration for spanish gem; the spanish jewel! Read up if you haven't already. I feel like you can appreciate the gem much more once you have. The complex aromas and multitudes of flavor profiles is simply sublime. When I got my first tin of SG; my friend and I took a pinch each, then sat and went back and forth on about the scents we could pick out. Straight from the tin I could pick out a funky scent almost like a mild cheddar along with a savory (weird I know) chocolately cake. Leave it in your nose a for a while and it gradually develops into a subtle sweet vanilla cocoa fruit flavor kind of like the smell of a ripe melon rind before it's cut. Sometimes when I go outside into cold dry air from a warm humid house it turns into something totally new, it sounds crazy but the odd time it happens! Perfect amount of nicotine for me since I am an ex-smoker, I would say medium-high. For any snuff aficionado this is a must have!

    this spanish gem snuff really is a gem! i can't quite pick out what the flavour consists of, but its not the ingredients that matter; it's the end product, and the end product here is the smoothest snuff to ever glide into my nostril (no burn whatsoever, not even a tingle!) and carries with it one of the sweetest and inviting scents i have smelled on top of the great classic toque base tobacco. really no other snuff can compare to this, it's a one of a kind blend that has to be experienced - words cant accurately describe this beautifully complex-yet-really-simple snuff. 10/10, would recommend to snuff beginners and veterans alike.

    This is a really great snuff; deeply flavourful and satisfying. The taste is complex and obviously, from looking at the other reviews, we all find different facets in that complexity. I don't get any cheese or honey as seems to be common, or any similarity to US snuffs. However, I was surprised with what I did get; the lingering taste slowly but surely turned into a slight but definate aroma of wintergreen. The interesting thing about snuff, like wine, is that the flavours you get are not necessarily anywhere near the actual ingredients, it is also different things to different pallates. This is a must for any collection, you might not use it all day long, but you will use it often if you are serious snuff taker.
